“Embrace the solitude and beauty that are the essence of the Tahoe Rim Trail.”
Truly, a "Trail like No Other"
The Tahoe Rim Trail is one of the world’s premier trails. It passes through two states (California and Nevada), six counties, one state park, three National Forests, and three Wilderness areas. This spectacular trail is 165 miles of single-track multiuse trail, winding from peak to peak around Lake Tahoe. It is a trail that offers something for everyone! Hiking and horseback riding are allowed on all portions of the trail, while mountain biking is allowed on the trail except in wilderness areas, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park, and on trail segments that overlap the Pacific Crest Trail. Please refer to the maps provided on the website and at the trail heads for more information. We also encourage you to order a detailed map from Shop TRT or stop by our office in Incline Village for maps and more information. Happy Trails!
